I am deploying on Op TELIC 10 and was wondering if anyone knows where I can get reasonably priced sachets of isotonic drinks. I was on Op TELIC 5 and spent a lot of time with the Yanks. In their Dining Facility you could freely collect bottles and sachets of Gatorade. I would love to be able to take some sachets with me this time and maybe have some sent out too. Obviously the size an weight of the bottles do not lend themselves to this. Does anyone know a good place to get them from? It is a crying shame that our government do not see fit to supply us with isotonic drinks given their benefits in the environment in which we are expected to operate. It would also be beneficial if they were freely available back at camp, especially after exercise such as PT, CFTs etc. Also, does anyone know if hpertonic/hypotonic drinks are any more beneficial?
